Rightly or wrongly, I take this to be especially common jargon within
political science. 

Let me emphasise the simple but vital underlying general point: In an
interdisciplinary list, trying to avoid discipline-specific jargon will
not only make your questions clearer, it will increase the chances of a
good answer. 

It even took me some years to realise that panel and longitudinal meant
the same thing, really (unless that's wrong too in some sense or other).

Typically in this context, "time series cross sectional"  Usually,  
that translates to "panel".  I believe "TSCS" is more common in some  
fields (certain social sciences?) than others.
